The acting was incredibly good!
18 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched a set of six video tapes in this Artists' Specials series, each about a different artist. This one was the best by far. The others were good but this one was great. I'm not going to recount the story, you can read that in the other reviews (none since 2000) and summary. I just wanted to post that this is a short movie well worth watching and you don't have to be interested in either art or dancing. Hat off to Thomas Jay Ryan as Degas and Alison Pill (all grown up now)- both displayed absolutely top notch acting ability. I saw Mr. Ryan in the Mary Cassatt tape first and thought he was a good actor, then this movie confirmed it. He needs to be in more films.
